Cowell's Bethany tribute

SIMON COWELL has paid tribute to a "very special girl" who lost her battle with a brain tumour just days after fulfilling her "ambition" to sing for him.

Five-year-old Bethany Fenton, who performed Twinkle Twinkle Little Star for the Britain's Got Talent judge on Saturday, died yesterday with her family at her side. Bethany, from Fairford, fought the illness for over a year.
